He added: “You see how he’s doing.” reference to Boris.

Bjorn Ulvaeus also said, “I mean, wow. Did they only play Abba music? Are you kidding? Of course they played other music as well.”

A source told the Mail On Sunday: ‘There was the sound of lots of banging, dancing and drinking, and a number of Abba tracks – including a triumphalist Winner Takes It All.’

However, a spokesperson for Ms Johnson has insisted claims of partying on the date are ‘completely untrue’
